SILBRADE® SILICONE HOSE

SKU: 290 Series

Braid Reinforced Silicone Hose

  • Open mesh polyester braiding incorporated within the walls of silicone tubing
  • Raw materials meet FDA requirements per FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 for use with food contact surfaces
  • Reusable — will withstand repeated sterilization^
  • Translucent natural color for visual contact with the flow
  • Able to resist extreme temperature variation: -99°F to 350°F
  • Odorless, tasteless, and inert
  • Excellent weather ability properties — resists U.V., ozone, gases, moisture, and extreme temperatures
  • Designed for elevated pressure applications
  • Listed by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF-51) for food equipment materials
  • Free of BPA, latex and phthalates; RoHS compliant

 

APPLICATIONS:

Beverage Service • Bottle Filling • Chemical Feeds • Deionized Water Transfer • Fermenter Lines • Hot Fill Lines • Food Handling • Laboratory • Resin Feeds • Stirring Vessels

 

Notes:

  • The construction of SILBRADE enables silicone tubing to handle increased pressure applications. SILBRADE offers outstanding resistance to temperature extremes and is made from raw materials that meet FDA requirements.
  • The flexible design and construction of SILBRADE also allows excellent bend radii and permits installation in restricted spaces without impeding flow.
  • SILBRADE, a peroxide-cured product, contains no sulphur or other acid-producing chemicals thereby eliminating the possibility of staining, corroding, or deteriorating other materials it contacts. It is also resistant to ozone and U.V. over long time periods.
  • Care is recommended in the selection of fittings and clamps, as sharp barbed fittings or unlined metal clamps could tear into the hose wall and possibly cause a failure, especially at elevated pressures.
  • ^SILBRADE may be low pressure steam sterilized in-line or autoclaved at up to 250°F in a normal autoclaving cycle. However, if exposed to repeated steam sterilization or long-term high temperature or pressure, silicone will eventually relax and become gummy. It should then be replaced.

SILBRADE is not recommended for implantable or in-body uses or for continuous steam applications.
